If you are looking for a first class vacation with the amenities of a full service 5-star hotel, look no further than the Grand Hotel Timeo. Located in the most beautiful section of Taormina, the property is a literally a garden oasis within this charming medieval town. The staff is second to none.

The Timeo is by far one of the best that I have stayed in throughout Europe. The environs are exceptional, the service in every respect from the reception to the chamber maids was exceptional, and the food was exceptional! What more can I say.

We stayed two days at the Hotel Timeo this August and had a wonderful time. The staff were so friendly and service impeccable - nothing was too much trouble. It combined the best of a wonderful hotel with the best views based on the hillside overlooking the bay and Etna, together with the beach hotel facilities of its sister hotel,... More

We stayed for 8 nights, wish we'd stayed longer. We will definitely be back. Very good service from everyone. From the moment we arrived until we dragged ourselves away. Friendly without being too informal. Everyone was great, but special mention to Alfie and Daniele. Perfect venue. Easy walking access to the town centre for shopping, restaurants and exploring the sights.... More

There is little to add à propos of the overall excellence of the Grand Hotel Timeo, in terms of the extraodinary natural beauty of the location, the courtesy, cordiality and efficiency of the staff and the very remarkable range of services offered, including a cuisine that is both genuine and innovative, with a choice of the very best Sicilian wines....

It is hard not to go overboard when describing this hotel. From the first moment when you drive up, you are greeted courteously and efficiently. The hotel is in central Taormina next to the Greek Theatre and the front entrance is at the end of a shopping street so as you drive up you may be a little concerned. Don't... More
